Some important things to do if you have a WordPress site includes making sure that you are always up to date. You should also always make sure that you have it backed up and that you take advantage of the user permissions. Do not make anyone an administrator if they have no reason to be one. Make sure that your login page is not easy to find so it is difficult to be hacked. Lastly, restrict the number of login attempts so if someone tries to hack you they get locked out.
